Disclaimer ;-) & General Info.: I will try to get these emails out every week, preferably on Wednesday morning to evening, as this is when most of the grocery store sales start. These will be mostly food sales, but occasionally I'll notice other good sales and will include them as well. Most of the deals will be for basic food staples and/or items I personally keep an eye on, or just happened to notice. Please let me know if there's something in particular you shop for and would like me to watch for sales on, or if you know of a good sale on something I can pass along. If an item is listed in this email, it's what I consider to be a pretty good buy. I will highlight the prices that are what I have found to be a "best deal of the year" on that particular brand/item. Those are great times to build up food storage or just stock up at a great price. *** Listed after the price indicates an exceptional buy, not the best I've seen, but pretty close. The sales listed below are from each stores sales ads. Be sure to keep an eye out when you go to the store as they usually have other sales that aren't listed in their ads.
Albertson's and Smith's require a "savings" card to get their sales. If you don't have one, they're free, and easy to sign up for at their service desks. If a price calls for an “in-ad coupon”, the store ads are usually available on a stand by the entrance to the store. Broulims usually has their coupons available to everyone at the check-outs. Winco doesn't have a store ad, and they change their prices at un-determined times. Their prices aren't guaranteed for any amount of time, but I will post them as of the time I saw them. Sometimes the stores don't stick to their limits, so be sure and ask if you want more. Also, most stores are good at giving rainchecks if they're out of an item. Smith's will allow you to order larger quantities of most sale items and call you when they're in.
